The author of a novel for young adults written in verse will visit the Prosser branch of Mid-Columbia Libraries on July 20 to talk about her book and her writing process.
A.L. Sonnichsen’s Red Butterfly is about a young Chinese girl’s journey. Sonnichsen, who now lives in Prosser with her family, was raised in Hong Kong and attended a British school there before spending eight years of her adult life in the Chinese city of Tianjin.
The free event is 4 to 5 p.m. and is part of the library district’s Summer Reading Challenge. Those who attend are encouraged to bring their own copies of Red Butterfly for Sonnichsen to sign.
